Richards, Gillian

Lives in Vancouver, BC

Artist Statement

Gillian Richards' work is an exploration of the unremarkable and normally unnoticed spaces that are a part of her surrounding urban landscape. Subjects such as parking lots or empty backyards occupied by trailers and garages often appear in her paintings. Drawn to the quality of light these spaces possess, and observing their ability to suggest a mood or imply a human presence, she seeks to draw from these otherwise ordinary and often stark locations a sense of intimacy and emotion.
